The In-N-Out Burger Foundation and the Heffernan Foundation each recently announced $2,000 grants to EBCLO’s Education Advocacy Program.  EBCLO’s Education Advocacy Program provides advocacy for school and mental health services at Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings, representation of children in school discipline hearings, enforcement of a foster youth’s right to remain in their school of origin despite changing homes,  technical assistance to other advocates and child welfare workers, and training for Berkeley Law students and volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) to be the holders of educational rights for foster children whose parents are unable to do so.
